If coming by car please note:

  • Much of Tyldesley, including main roads through and around the town centre and residential areas are now subject to 20mph speed limits
  • For the latest updates on planned roadworks, see the roadwork bulletin from Wigan Council.
  • You can search for the latest roadwork information in Greater Manchester
  • You can also use this link to find comprehensive information on current and other roadworks in the region or nationally using ‘‘.
  • Visitor parking is limited and spaces are situated outside the main school front security gate entrance.
  • Use marked bays only.
  • There is a 5 mph speed limit on site.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and pedestrians have priority at all times.
  • There is NO student pick up / drop off point within the school grounds.
  • When approaching by car access school from Castle Street / Tyldesley Road (landmark “ICELAND Store”) into Mill Street then onward to Printshop Lane, and not via Elliott Street / Squires Lane (this is often the entrance that Sat Nav devices bring you in to) as you will not be able to gain access this way.
